The suddenly injury-plagued New York Rangers will be without St. Louis for 10 to 14 days due to a right knee ailment. St. Louis was injured late in New York's 2-1 home victory over Florida on March 15 when he fell while tangled up with Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov during a puck battle. Kulikov's left shoulder landed on St. Louis' knee with 4:32 left.
General manager Glen Sather said in a statement Monday the 39-year-old forward will be out up to two weeks with what the club called a lower-body injury. St. Louis, an alternate captain who has played in all 68 games this season, is second on the team with 20 goals and third with 47 points.
